We've been working on the public build for Side-Quest as development on Con-Quest's new battle system continues!
For those not in the know, Side-Quest is a visual novel that we've been developing alongside Con-Quest. The beta version is available for all of our patrons here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/side-quest-beta-20770617
Side-Quest has undergone some major revisions already since the beta's release and we're excited to show everyone!
Above, you can see a collection of art by our team that's going into the next release! Most (or all) of those assets didn't even make an appearance in our current release! We're very excited to show you our release build.
Here are a few changes you can expect from the Release Version:
- More character sprites
- More visually dynamic situations
- Revamped approach to date-swapping
- General polish, including faster transitions and fewer bugs
- More endings
- More rewards
- At least one secret story path
Which leads us to some big news!
We are currently preparing for and planning a release on Steam! With the floodgates now open to adult games and Side-Quest being built with a compatible engine, we see no reason to not at least attempt to deliver Side-Quest to you through a common distribution platform!
We are also still planning our Android release and we may have a Android Beta available to patrons as early as this week!
The final version of Side-Quest will of course release first on Patreon to our patrons. We can also guarantee that all of our patrons will be able to receive and download Side-Quest totally free.
Finally, we hope to have our final release finished by November 1st! There is a good chance that we'll be finished ahead of schedule, but November 1st seems to be a pretty healthy bet on Side-Quest's completion.
See you next update!
